American College of Physicians completes Top Ten list
telling Senators and Representatives they must take action
November 16, 2011
(Washington) -The American College of Physicians (ACP) today
revealed the #1 reason why Congress should repeal the SGR
(sustainable growth rate) now.
Like the other reasons on the Top 10 list, the #1 reason is
recognized for making it clear why Congress must act now to enact a
permanent solution to the fatally-flawed formula that works to hurt
patients, physicians and economic growth.
Starting with reasons ten, nine and eight last Wed., ACP
unveiled the Top Ten reasons for immediate repeal. Emails adding to
the list have been sent each day to the authorizing committees of
jurisdiction (chairs, ranking members and rank and file), House and
Senate leadership (majority and minority), super committee members
and members of the Doctors Caucus.
Today, they received the #1 reason:
1. No more SGR patches! You will have delivered a
long-awaited solution to a nightmarish problem, where countless
lawmakers before you have failed.
The list also was posted each day on ACP's website in the
The American College of Physicians (www.acponline.org) is the largest medical
specialty organization and the second-largest physician group in
the United States. ACP members include 132,000 internal medicine
physicians (internists), related subspecialists, and medical
students. Internists specialize in the prevention, detection, and
treatment of illness in adults. Follow ACP on Twitter and Facebook.
10. You'll actually be able to find a doctor when you get
9. Please show the same support for doctors' offices that you do
for other small businesses.
8. Grandma will thank you.
7. Doctors and their patients will finally stop calling, writing
and emailing you about the SGR. Enough already!
6. Doctors can't afford to invest in health IT and other
technological improvements if they don't know what next year's (or
next month's) payments will look like.
5. The SGR formula also impacts TRICARE spending. Don't you want
your military, veterans and their families to be in tip-top
4. Jobs, jobs, jobs! Doctors' offices employ more than just
physicians. You'll be saving the jobs of billing clerks,
receptionists and other support staff.
3. You have to spend money to save money. The cost of repealing
the SGR can be offset with cost savings (potentially billions of
dollars) through initiatives that spend health care dollars more
2. Waiting only costs money. By 2016 the cost to fix this
problem will double.
1. No more SGR patches! You will have delivered a long-awaited
solution to a nightmarish problem, where countless lawmakers before
you have failed. culminate
